Dansby Swanson Celebrates Being MLB’s #1 Pick with Vandy Teammates (Video)

Dansby Swanson MLB Draft

A lot isn’t made of the MLB draft. That’s probably because virtually no college players are prepared to go straight into the Major Leagues, so getting picked is pretty much just a graduation to minor league ball with a big signing bonus. But that didn’t keep Vanderbilt shortstop Dansby Swanson from celebrating pretty hard with his teammates yesterday.

He was taken with the #1 pick by the Arizona Diamondbacks as he wrapped up a game against Illinois in the Super Regional Finals—which the Commodores won, earning them a spot in the College World Series. Not a bad day of baseball for Mr. Dansby Swanson.

Here’s the clip of the raucous celebration:

They should be jumping. The first round pick has a recommended value of $8.8 million, which they’ll begin to negotiate once Vanderbilt’s season ends.
